Red Hot Real Estate

Sonia Thompson

The real estate market is hot right now, and if you're thinking about buying a home, then it's a great time to make the move for a number of reasons.

According to a recent article from J.P. Morgan, there are several contributing factors:

  • Mortgage rates have risen, but are still historically low
  • Home construction still falls short of meeting demand
  • Remote work is likely to keep suburbs attractive
  • Millennials—the largest generation in U.S. history—are expected to keep buying homes

A few other helpful takeaways from the same article include:

  • Housing prices have spiked during the last six-to-nine months, and they are likely to keep rising. That means, if you're looking to purchase a new home, conditions now may be be better than in a year from now, especially if you are looking in the U.S. South. That's because a “flight to the South” that was already underway before the pandemic hit, greatly accelerated during the COVID-19 crisis.
  • Since 2008, the shortage in construction of new homes has been so extreme that there is now a lack of homes available for sale. It will take time to reverse this supply shortage.
